Swedish "paramotor" pilot faces charges after accident in Chiang Mai

Recommended Posts

Flown out of the small airfield in Pattaya in small two seater. Pilot from NY licensed  and been here awhile married to a Thai lady. Checked a couple years ago and he’s retired from flying.

 

There’s a flying club out there with a number of legally licensed pilot. Great fun flying around the city at lower altitude with regulations. 

 

Hope the Swede was licensed and legitimate if for profit. If not some serious issues both for flying and medical expenses.

The Korean is believed to have had insurance from their home country. 

Does anybody else see the problems within this sentence?  Just curious.

Feel sorry for both, but it's a real shame that the pilot was flying customers around without insurance.

Wish the injured a good recovery.

He would have been uninsurable. An aviation insurer would require;

- pilot's license or other license that allows for the activity;

- certification of the aircraft, even if a paraglider

- would most definitely have excluded commercial activity.

 

The Swede knew what he was doing was  both illegal and morally wrong.

He deserves to be charged with multiple criminal offences, including working  illegally.

As other posters noted, there was no mention in the OP of the Swede doing it for money, perhaps his passenger was just a friend.

Agree with the rest though, flying an aircraft without insurance is totally irresponsible.
